What happens to your BTC when you die?

Please take it easy on me if this is a dumb question, but I’m pretty new to crypto, and I recently heard of the term “coin burn,” and it got me thinking. What happens when the BTC holding population becomes old enough that they begin to die? If they haven’t set up a beneficiary in their will, what happens to those coins? Would their coins just sit in a digital wallet somewhere forever until the end of time, or until that energy turned into something else (the world blows up or something)? Could it become a problem in the future? Is there any process through which “lost” coins can return to the supply?
